No matter how often you visit or what time of year, there will always be something different to experience. Some suggestions include visiting the Wetland during spring and fall migration, the Hitz Family Rose Garden throughout the early summer and the Prairie in late summer when it comes alive. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy in the Pavilion Garden area or grab a snack at the Railway Garden Depot.
Gabis Arboretum is dog-friendly. Please be considerate and keep them on leash, they may scare off wildlife and disturb endangered plant life. Pet waste stations are located throughout the property. Only service dogs are permitted in the Visitors Center and Railway Garden. For pet comfort while visiting the Depot, there is a shaded hitching post to the left of the Visitors Center entrance.
